Earl Morris’ description of Room 125-2 at the time of excavation is as follows. “The floor of Room 125-2 was unstained by use. Covering it was from 2 to 6 inches of earth laid down in thin strata by storms. In the debris overlying the storm deposit there was much charcoal from the burned ceiling, as well as chunks of adobe from the third floor, fired from black to dull red in color and as hard as brick. Mixed with the charred material were a black-on-white mug, a polished slab, ceremonial sticks, yucca cord, five charred sandals, and an incomplete sandal, as well as a shattered mug, two dressed stone slabs, and some mosaic elements of shell and turquoise.” (Morris 1928:361) Reference: Earl Morris, 1928, Notes on Excavations in the Aztec Ruin, Volume XXVI, Part V, Anthropological Papers of the American Museum of Natural History, New York.
